Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _____Wednesday, Juno 17, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 41 Moral P: Still Persists By OTTO DOELUNG FRANKFURT (AP) Twenty-five years after the collapse of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, Germans still are attempting to come to terms with the 12 years of their Nazi past. Tile moral problem of what the Germans call "die Be- waeltigung der Vergangen- or overcoming the past, persists although about a third of West G e t m a n y 's people were born after Germany's surrender in May, 1345. Irrespective of the moral issue, the consensus seems to he that the Germans have learned from the past. Addressing B o n n 's diplo- matic corps recently. West German President Gustav Heinemann said: should appreciate that the over- whelming majority of our citi- zens, in contrast to 1918, has not fallen victim to the temp- tations of a new short-sighted nationalism, but rather has di- rected itself toward thoughts of European solidarity and co-operation with the peoples of the world." Physically Handicapped Drafted WASHINGTON (AP) United States draft boards con- cerned with filling their monthly quotas often draft physically handicapped and mentally dis- turbed youths who are unfit for military service, says a civilian committee. The committee, appointed to study the U.S. Army prison sys- tem and composed of six noted penologists, said it found many draftees in army stockades "who were clearly not fitted for military service." "The committee is well aware of the fact that some local boards, having trouble filling their quotas, draft youth with physical and mental inadequa- cies, and sometimes with severe personality and character de- fects that doom them to almost certain failure in the army." No specific figures were given on how many young men might be in this category'. In its report, released Monday by the U.S. defence department the committee recommended the army concentrate on rapidly identifying the unfit and unsuit- able and discharging them be- fore they get into trouble. INGOT OUTPUT DOWN OTTAWA (CP) Steel ingot production totalled tons last week, down 2.6 per cent from the preceding week, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Monday. The bureau's index of production, based on 1957-59 output equalling 100, was 240 last week, 246 a week ear- lier, and 233 a year ago. Countess Marion Ducnhoff, cdilor-in-chief of the liberal weekly Die Zeit, put it suc- cinctly slit; looked back over 25 years and wrote "Tills people has had enough of dreams of hegemony. It wants peace, security and prosperity." The Associated Press posed to West Germans in key posi tions in politics and civic life the question: "Have the Gel mans learned from the pasf Here are excerols of re- plies: Former chancellor Luriwig Erhard: "The willingness of Germans to assert themselves in a world that returned to peace and order by hard labor and on the basis of freedom, not only indicates the will of that people to live, but also i s belated understanding that the principle of absolute or to- talitarian rule does not bring justice to a world still living along nationalistic lines." Philosopher Carl Fredrick von Weizsaecker: "Germans have learned from the past politically that they are o longer a great power. This awareness is today firmly rooted in the entire people. A moral showdown with self-cre- ated injustice is difficult for all groups, thus also for all nations, the German m eluded." SOME DID NOT LEARN' Dr. Henrik van Dam, gen- eral secretary of the Central Council of the Jews in Ger- many: "Cliches must be ruled out not only because they are immoral but also because the oversimplfications resting in them falsify reality. No doubt there are Germans who did not learn from the past be- cause they ar'e not in the sen sible condition to do so, rooted in an eternal yesterday, as it were. But there are many Germans who had the will to learn and drew the consequ- ences by knowledge and per- ception. The important thing is what values an organized community, such as state and society, turn to. Rejection of right-wing radicalism by the majority and recognition of the need to keep up with mod- ern developments indicate the Germans learned from their past." Adolf von Thadden, chair- man of the rightist National Democratic party: "After two European wars between brothers, Germany and Eu- r'ope remain divided by an East-West confrontation. But the German people still hold the hope for a unified state. This will only materialize through a peaceful solution brought about jointly by West European countries. History thus teaches that our national problem within the European tension area only can' be solved by all states con- cerned. If not, Western Eu- I'ope soon will be no more than the frontier of the Soviet Union." ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) A re- port that tolbutamide, a drug used by thousands of diabetics, mav lead to early death caused coi loversy Tuesday at the American Diabetics Association meeting, but die president of ;he organization said the group saw no need yet to abandon the :lmg.

Lowly Bicycle Becomes In Machine In Canada TORONTO (CP) After dec- ades obscurity, the lowly bi- cycle has become the "in" ma- chine for persons of all ages. Spokesmen for manufacturers and sellers say that both young and older types are snapping up bikes from sporting goods stores in a fashion that would arouse groans of envy from any auto salesman. "The total bike market in Canada and the United States is bigger today than it has ever says Thomas Nease, president of Canadian Cycle and Motor Co. Ltd. He said most people are under the misconception that European countries are the centres of cycling because they are used to a far greater extent in daily travels. "Tills is untrue. The world's highest usage of hikes per cap- ita over the last 10 years is in North America. For one thing, the bike is more in the toy cate- gory for kids than anything else." While children acquire bikes for zooming around the neigh- borhood, the adults buy them for exercise. And Mr. Nease says children are riding bicy- cles at a much earlier age. "They are getting at least two or three new bikes in their bike-riding he said, add- ing that the sale of bikes has more than doubled from 1964 to 1970.

BOTTLER: PURITY BOTTLING (1967) LTD., LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA CcwCoU and Cchc iwilited (rtde miiiu whim MtfiUtt Mb kit "The reason is the tremen- dous change in styling, from the conventional bike to the high- rise, banana-seat complex." COLOR ATTRACTS The banana-seat trend starte. in California in 1965 and "we picked up on it almost immedi- ately, it was so fantastic." The most common type ol bike today is the "high-rise" type with lots of chrome and color to capture the eight- to 12-year-old bracket. These mod- els sell in the to range. The most significant change in bicycles is the fact they have become a family thing. "More and more adults are purchasing bikes for their exer- cise said Mr. Nease. "It is not uncommon for a man to come in and purchase bikes for himself and his wife as well as the kids." Naturally the parents do nol buy the slick bikes kids like, bul stick to tire old standard types or the tandem. One dealer said he "can't enough for the seniors." Adults buy anything from S25C racing bikes to second-hand jobs. Mayoralty Candidate Imprisoned MONTREAL (CP) Chiro- practor Gilbert Croteau, an op- ponent of Mayor Jean Drapeau in the Montreal municipal elec- tion, was sentenced Monday to 30 months in prison for defraud- ing patients of more than Judge Maurice Rousseau of Sessions Court said chiroprac- tors can help patients, but he criticized Croteau for playing with the health of his patients. Judge Rousseau said Friday when he found Croteau guilty that the accused had deceived many of his patients into believ- ing he was making serious diag- noses of their ailments. Evidence at the trial showed that about 500 fake blood tests and 224 non-existent x-rays were given at Croteau's office from 1964 to Croteau. 47, received almost votes to finish second to Mr. Drapeau in the 1966 elec- tion.

Dr. Harry Keen of Guy's Hos- pital in London reported a study which he said suggests that a significant degree of protection against disorders of the heart and circulatory system results from the use of tolbulamide in mildly diabetic patients. A second favorable study, on the effect of tolbutamide on "pre-diabetic" patients who had had one heart attack, found that in the first 18 months of treat- ment, the group receiving tolbu- tamide had only half the num- ber of deaths that occurred in the group that received no med- ication. However, over longer periods of treatment, no differ- ence in death rates was ob- served in the two groups. Dr. Robert C. Hardin of Iowa City. Iowa, outgoing president of the American Diabetes Asso- ciation, said in a statement: "At this point, the evidence presented does not appear to abandoning the pres- ently-accepted methods of treat- ing diabetes with diet, diet with oral agents or diet wilh insulin as indicated." lie said the keystone of diabe- tes control is still diet. Dr. i 11 i a m N. Hubbard. vice-president of Upjohn, said he had had no opportunity lo study the full report and would have no comment on it. Heads 1PIIA ALLIANCE. Neb. (API Pete Wcngsr of Weyburn.
